There's a whole, in fact quite a few generations that walk, talk &, dress like me. They say babygirl sweetheart or ma, not outta disrespect but, in fact the opposite. We don't ask fathers for their daughters hands in marriage. We live nothing like you but, that's normal to us! Don't ever get divorced! You'll be alone for the rest of your life!

Lewis Points Finger At ‘Rich White People’ For School Problems
Says Chicago is Most Segregated City in America
June 19, 2013 6:53 AM
CHICAGO (CBS)– A day before the first set of school closings was set to begin, Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis (a black woman) had some harsh words about how the Chicago Public Schools are funded and managed, blaming much of the district’s problems on racism.
WBBM Newsradio’s Nancy Harty reports, at a luncheon on education reform, Lewis told members of the City Club that Chicago is the most segregated city in America.
“When will there be an honest conversation about poverty and racism and inequality that hinders the delivery of an education product in our school system? When will we address the fact that rich white people think they know what’s in the best interest of children of African-Americans and Latinos, no matter what the parents’ income or education level?” she asked.
Lewis said minority neighborhoods are disproportionately disinvested by the city, and see more foreclosures and school closures.
“It’s as if there were a concerted effort to make sure that these are not walkable, thriving, healthy communities,” she said.
Lewis also blamed banks for driving people out of their homes through illegal foreclosures, resulting in underutilized schools and a smaller tax base.
“If the banks had not crashed our economy, the district would now have nearly $180 million more to invest in our classrooms,” she said.
As for efforts to reform schools, Lewis said CPS should work with teachers to improve schools, and not appointed board members who’ve never stepped foot in a classroom.
“When did all these venture capitalists get so interested in the lives of minority students in the first place? There’s something about these folks who love the kids, but hate their parents,” Lewis said.“As long as the status quo of elites continues to impress upon our district, these horrible policies that may work very well in corporate environments – but are simply not good for children – the Chicago Teachers Union will be portrayed as oppositionists.”
She said inequality has prevented people from embracing more revenue for schools through higher property taxes.
“If you look at the majority of the tax base for property taxes in Chicago, they’re mostly white, who don’t have a real interest in paying for the education of poor black and brown children,” she said.
She offered suggestions for school funding instead of more cuts and layoffs – pointing instead to TIF funds, taxes on commuters and financial trades, and what she called a more equitable tax system to bring in billions of dollars for schools.
and one more thing-Karen Lewis is a racist bigot.

Putin is a lock in Russia. He will be part of the controls on the Russian government for the rest of his life.
Putin knows the US is headed toward collapse. All he has to do is just wait until our debt becomes so great, we won't even be able to afford the day-to-day existence of the government. Russia doesn't have that problem. They have a flat tax, controls on their spending, and they don't run around the world with a tin cup in their hand begging for other countries to pay for their welfare states.
Obama is obviously joined with the Arab muslim extremists. Russia will just wait out the Suni-Shi'ite civil war in Syria while they watch the United States waste itself there backing the very elements that are also at war with the United States. Putin knows it's a no-win situation for the United States.
Putin knows that well because ts the same way that Reagan brought down the Soviet Union in the 1980s...bankrupt and floundering in Afghanistan.

Wonder if the future president ever heard a sermon about forgiveness in that church?
Seems that would be the message rather than inciting hatred.
Then, of course, there was Father Pfleger, who was a guest speaker in that church, who delighted in belittling Hillary for just being a white women.
But Obama surely wasn't influenced by his "spiritual mentor" or his message of hate and anger towards whites for 20 years.
Right?
Because he did say, after all, that his grandmother was a "typical white person" who reacted negatively to black people when she encountered them on the street.
Oh, wait a minute...a "typical white person" always reacts negatively to black people?
No need for you to answer.
Yea typical whites do react negatively to blacks when encountered in the streets. Now make up your mind, is Obama a Muslim or, a Christian with a Christian spiritual advisor? Can't have it both ways!

Yes, we must "evolve" in order to "transform" from a free capitalistic society to a government controlled society.
Because Americans who demand government accountability from a newly elected far left liberal are called a "threat to democracy" by this newly elected far left liberal.
Thus, the abuse of power by the IRS is just the beginning of the transformation to a government controlled society.
And what has this president done to denounce this unprecedented abuse of power? He gave them permission in his speeches in 2010.
the same lefties who have no problem with the abuse of power by the IRS are offended by what they call racial profiling, i.e. at airports.

'...Along the way, alas, Secretary Mineta’s dream of a world in which “a 70-year-old white woman from Vero Beach” and “a Muslim young man” are subject to equal scrutiny has not come to pass. The Vero Beach gran’ma gets a lot MORE attention than the guy from the Yemeni madrassah, especially if she’s made the mistake of attending a tea-party meeting or two.'

libs would have also preferred the boston bombing had been carried out by rightwingers. the boston police dept prior to the bombing had even been training for terrorist attacks by rightwingers, because of Big POLITICALLY CORRECT Brother:

'In the far more exciting Boston Police fantasy, the bombers were a group of right-wing militiamen called “Free America Citizens,” a name so suspicious (involving as it does the words “free,”“America,” and “citizens”) that it can only have been leaked to them by the IRS. What fun the law-enforcement community in Massachusetts had embroidering their hypothetical scenario: The “Free America Citizens” terrorists even had their own little logo — a skull’s head with an Uncle Sam hat. Ooh, scary! The Boston PD graphics department certainly knocked themselves out on that.'

'...Meanwhile, back in the real world, Tamerlan Tsarnaev was training in Dagestan, posting terrorist videos on YouTube, and getting fingered by the Russians to the FBI. Who did nothing.

If you had the misfortune to be blown up by the Tsarnaev brothers, and are now facing a future with one leg and suddenly circumscribed goals, like those brave Americans featured on the cover of the current People magazine under the headline “Boston Tough,” you might wish Boston had been a little tougher on Tamerlan and spent less time chasing the phantoms of “Free America Citizens.”

But, in fact, it would have been extremely difficult to track the Tsarnaevs at, say, the mosque they attended. Your Granny’s phone calls, your teenager’s Flickr stream, and your Telecharge tickets for two on the aisle at Mamma Mia! for your wife’s birthday, and the MasterCard bill for dinner with your mistress three days later are all fair game, but SINCE OCTOBER 2011 MOSQUES HAVE BEEN OFF-LIMITS TO THE SECURITY STATE.

If the FBI guy who got the tip-off from Moscow about young Tamerlan had been sufficiently intrigued to want to visit the Boston mosque where he is said to have made pro-terrorism statements during worship, the agent would have been unable to do so without seeking approval from something called the SENSITIVE OPERATIONS REVIEW COMMITTEE HIGH UP IN ERIC HOLDER'S Department of Justice.

The Sensitive Operations Review Committee is so sensitive nobody knows who’s on it. You might get approved, or you might get sentenced to extra sensitivity training for the next three months.

Even after the bombing, the cops forbore to set foot in the lads’ mosque for FOUR DAYS. Three hundred million Americans are standing naked in the NSA digital scanner, but the all-seeing security state has agreed that not just their womenfolk but Islam itself can be fully veiled from head to toe.'

'...We’re told that universal surveillance has prevented all kinds of atrocities we can never hear about — an answer straight out of Orwell.

Yet oddly, in the ones we do hear about, the perps are hiding in plain sight -

(MAJOR HASAN WITH "SOLDIER OF ALLAH" ON HIS BUSINESS CARD),

the intelligence services do nothing (the PANTYBOMBER known to the CIA but still permitted to board the plane),

and the digital superstate is useless (the Tsarnaev photo rang no bells with the facial-recognition software, but was identified by friends who saw it on TV).

And thus, the bozo leviathan blunders on. Big Politically Correct Brother sees everything ... and nothing.'

There is a course anyone can take that debunks the system of lies the Democrats invented to hide their treason against the United States. It's called "history".
Shall we go over some history?
How about we start with the Democrats joining the enemy communists of the United States at the beginning of the Cold War. Later, we can conclude with the Democrats joining the Arab terrorists that murdered 3000 people in the United States.
Funny how under bushie boy's watch and being at battle stations, cons still blame non cons for their failure.

<quoted text>It costs 21 thousand per child in the City of Chicago-most of it goes to the commie teachers. A 48% graduation rate with most of them unable to read isn't exactly teaching children up-the curriculum is to teach the children down. They teach more about social justice than they teach about math and reading. There is no reason the entire state should pay for this failure called Chicago Public Schools.
Teacher union president Karen Lewis appears to be focused on eating instead of education.
